I came to Babson wanting to pivot from Army engineer officer to strategy consultant, with Accenture at the top of my list. I spent the summer session of The One-Year MBA program building relationships with the Graduate Center for Career Development (CCD) team and getting up to speed on case interviewing. By the time I had my first rounds of interviews with Deloitte and PwC, I had 20 cases under my belt. When Accenture happened shortly after, I couldn’t have been more prepared. In the end, three top consulting firms invited me to interview, and all three of them gave me an offer. My advice is to get to know the CCD team and take full advantage of everything they offer. – James Grande MBA’18, Senior Strategy Consultant, Accenture
